5 Ways To Earn Last Minute Christmas Money
It's only weeks until Christmas, and you have found yourself struggling to make ends meet while giving your family gifts they will enjoy. Here are 5 Ways To Earn Last Minute Christmas Money that are easy for you to manage. Not only can you make a few hundred dollars in a short time, you will manage to give your family the Christmas they deserve.
Sell Homemade Baked Goods: Tons of people would love to have real quality home baked treats around the holidays. Everything from homemade jams and jellies to delicate candies will sell. If you offer tasty sugar free, gluten free or low fat varieties you have an even larger market to sell your foods to.
Offer Babysitting Services: Parents are always needing extra time to do things around the holidays without the kids around. This is the prime time to offer up babysitting services to your community. Advertise to your friends and family, as well as on community boards, in local Facebook swap shops and on Craigslist.
Purge Your Closets: If you have great gently used winter clothing that isn't being used, now is the time to purge and sell. The time before the holidays is when people are seeing winter weather hit and may be strapped for cash to fill out their wardrobe. Offering your own great quality gently used clothing in local swap shops, Craigslist or on eBay can earn you a nice chunk of change in a short period of time.
Create Unique Hand Crafted Gifts: If you are great with crocheting, knitting, crafting items or sewing now is the time of year to put those items out there for sale. Everyone loves a hand made item to give as a gift. Create some scarves, hats, painted plaques and other unique holiday gift items to sell.
Clean Houses: This is always important around the holidays. As people have events, parties and family coming in for a visit, there will be a lot of people looking for a reputable person to clean for them. These are often one time deep cleans that can earn anywhere from $50-$100 in no time.
These easy ways to earn last minute Christmas money are perfect for anyone. Whether you are great with baking, making crafts or just good with kids – there is something here for everyone. Begin thinking outside the box to create a fun way to make some extra cash this holiday season.
I also want to point out one of my favorite ways to make money at home is via blogging! See what you need to know to get started blogging.

I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
